About Animal Behaviour at University of Exeter

This programme is designed to introduce you to Animal Behaviour, provide fundamental concepts, facts and methods in the discipline and encourage you to apply your knowledge and acquired methods with wild or captive animals. Topics include: behavioural ecology (ecological basis and reasons for behaviour); biodiversity and animal behaviour (how animals differ and how divergent behaviour evolves); cognition (including memory and problem solving); ethology (recording and describing behaviour objectively); neuroethology (neural basis of behaviour); sensory ecology (influences of sensory systems on behaviour and their relationships to ecology); and sociobiology (ecological, genetic and evolutionary reasons for social behaviour). Practical classes will give you training in quantitative, field and laboratory-based observational and experimental methodology covering the broad range of subject areas across the core modules.
